Trying to follow the instructions to move most of zubuntu to the internal flash to try to make the system work quickly and independent of the SDCard. I have found that the kexecboot will not see the boot folder on the /dev/mtdblock3 but will see it on /dev/mtdblock2.

I am using the updater and tools from the PDAXii3 site to resize the root mtd partition to 121 and see if that works.

we will see

Thanks for the info ant. Do those kernels scan the nand any faster? Whatever kexec kernel I am currently using will sit there for like 2 minutes trying to read the nand.

Yeah, detection of jffs2 images is painfully slow...I hope someone will rewrite the code but the real speedup will come when UBI/UBIFS will be used instead of JFFS2.

BTW I had better results on my very-old SD card (around 25-30 secs):
